Lower minimum siren duration

Currently the shortest duration I can configure the base station siren to is 1 minute. I would like to set the siren duration to something much shorter like a couple seconds. Maybe the siren would sound only as long as movement is detected.

I would really like to use my cameras to help train my pets when I am away. The siren could deter them from entering any area under observation by the motion sensor. I would prefer not to punish them with a minute long ear-splitting torture. Hopefully the lag would short enough for them to make the connection between cause and effect.

 +1 on this, 3s, 5s, 10s, 30s, 45s would be very useful as well.


Ditto the above. Just need a few seconds as then off to investigate as delivery drivers could be gone by the time I have checked the cameras on my phone.
